Private Sub Form_Load()
picpath = "\\computer2\photo\"
Picture1.Picture = LoadPicture(picpath & Clipboard.GetText & ".jpg")

End Sub
Here is the problem clipbard.gettext may contain blank spaces and when i try to open the picture it doesent find it
it tries to open 1       .jpg instead of 1.jpg
I have to capture 7 caracters in the clipboard cause sometime i could have 1234567.jpg

Try this:

Picture1.Picture = LoadPicture(picpath & replace(Clipboard.GetText," ", "") & ".jpg")

Good Luck,
